1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Draw the shear force and bending moment diagrams for the beam shown in Fig. 1 below. Determine the maximum tensile and compressive bending stresses and the positions at which they occur. The beam’s cross-sectional area is shown in Fig. 2. http://i1225.photobucket.com/albums/ee382/jon_jon_19/q2.jpg 2. Relevant equations Bending Stress = Mc/I Where I is inertia, c is distance from neutral axis, M is the bending moment 3. The attempt at a solution I have drawn the shear and bending moment forces and worked out the moment of inertia in the T-section. But I am unsure how I work out the maximum tensile and compressive bending stresses. How do I apply this. Thanks.
